Handicap Information
Carriages are a great way for handicapped or disabled people to experience the French Quarter. If they can walk up steps with assistance, they will be able to board our carriages with ease. We do provide stepping stools and assistance. For people with no mobility, no ability to stand, these people may not be able to access the seat of the carriage. Our private carriages are more open air, so there is more ability for these individuals to be placed into those carriages, or larger people. Wheelchairs, strollers, and walkers can be left behind at our Jackson Square boarding location, and our on-site supervising manager will look after them. We suggest that all important items be taken on the ride.

Cancellation Policy
Customers may cancel at least 72 hours prior to their arrival date and time to receive a full refund minus a $5 service fee. Customers that cancel after the 72 hour period will not be eligible for a refund. The carriages are covered and therefore operate rain or shine, but if weather is severe and the vendor calls of the tour you may be rescheduled for a later time/date or a full refund will be issued. No-shows will not be refunded. Customer may make changes to the reservation without any fees as long as it's outside the 72 hour cancellation period. Tour directors of large groups must make sure the group is on time for scheduled pick-ups.

    Disappointed :(

    Honestly, my friends and I found the tour really boring. Our tour guide was difficult to hear (I understand it would be difficult to drive a horse/mule and talk to people in the back at the same time) but what we did hear, just did not keep our interest. We got off before the tour ended. Maybe it just wasn't our "thing".

    Nighttime Carriage Ghost Tour

    One hour tour of the French Quarter was very informative. Our guide was well informed and made it interesting. Glad I made the reservation beforehand as this tour was sold out. Great relaxing ride.

    Great tour guide - not so great tour

    The tour guide was awesome. He really knew his history (or memorized the script quite well) and was able to express himself in a very interesting way. I was a bit disappointed in that I was expecting a bit more of a creepy (ghostly) tour, or expected to be taken to a graveyard or somewhere more creepy. We mainly stayed off a few side roads off Decatur. Oh well. Live and learn. Won't do it again.
